Functional Medicine Testing

Nutrient Testing

Metabolomix+ is one of the most comprehensive functional and nutritional assessments available. It is designed to identify root causes of dysfunction and provide a systems-based approach to overcome chronic conditions and live a healthier life.

The Metabolomix+ report offers:

  • Nutrient recommendations for key vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and digestive support

  • Dynamic biochemical pathway charts for clearer understanding

  • Interpretation-At-A-Glance pages for education


Nutrigenomic Testing

Nutrigenomics is the study of how diet interacts with your genes and how individual genetic differences can affect the way you respond to vitamins, minerals, and compounds in the food we eat. Nutritional genome assesses over 100 clinically relevant genes to provide you information on potential health susceptibilities so you can make dietary and lifestyle adjusts to protect your health long term.

Stool Analysis

The stool analysis is a comprehensive assessment of complete gut health, assessing the root cause of most GI complaints. The report synthesize findings by integrating a novel, proprietary scoring system and scores functional imbalances to will help direct targeted therapeutic recommendations. Biomarkers are grouped and scored in 5 key areas relating to GI function including maldigestion, inflammation, dysbiosis, metabolite imbalance and infection. 

Muscle Testing or Nutrition Response Testing

Muscle testing or nutrition response testing is a technique to determine your level of optimal supplements, assess food sensitivities, parasites, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and environmental toxins. Muscle testing is a simple, safe, natural method of analyzing the body’s needs using the body’s reflexes. It is precise and scientific, and is a modern version of a very old technique.

In the 1920’s physicians developed a method for insurance companies to test people making claims for injury. This method enabled them to see if they were in fact experiencing an imbalance and if so, how it could be treated best. This method was based on the research of the pioneering physician Dr. Frank Chapman and has evolved into muscle testing with the further work of Dr. George Goodheart. Simply stated, muscle testing evaluates the electrical network or grid which surrounds and flows through the body. If the electrical system is in balance then the body’s muscles will be stronger than if the electrical system is out of balance. The most common area of the body to test is the arm. The person being tested holds their arm in front of them, or beside them, parallel to the ground. If pressure is applied to the person’s extended arm while their body’s electrical system is being negatively affected by a toxin, the muscles will weaken and the arm will not be able to resist the pressure. However, if pressure is applied while his electrical system is being positively affected, the person will easily resist and the arm will hold its position.
